Maybe I’m just a morning person, maybe you think I’m nuts, but morning is my favorite time of day. I think it’s worth it to enjoy the stillness of the early morning light. I took this photo the other day at Tierra Linda, before seven in the morning. The air was warm, the birds were singing and other than that all was quiet; the scene was glorious…
I sat by the water and reflected on the greatness of our God, recalling those great characters of the Scriptures who have gone before, and how often they did the same thing that I was doing.
Give ear to my words, O Lord,
consider my sighing.
Listen to my cry for help,
my King and my God,
for to you I pray.
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice;
in the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait in expectation.
There is nothing like reflection and prayer in the early morning stillness, before the bustle of the day begins. It sets our sights on the goal, it sets our minds in the right direction. The whole day will be better, our walk with Christ will be closer, and somehow life makes sense after all.
Yes, it’s true; there’s nothing like the stillness of the morning!
